Hello Austin,

Great to have you with us! So you've read Lila and Lila's Child... you
come prepared, I see. Speaking of Nassim Taleb and his work on black
swan events (not to mention his bartending skills), Lila's Child fits
the bill, at least in my own personal experience. There was no way I
could reasonably expect what happened based on past experiences. The
effect of Lila's Child is still resonating with me, like a gigantic
bell that once rung has yet to dissipate... the chime only grows
louder and more insistent. And of course looking back I tell myself
how the entire process was bound to happen due to the preconditions
set in place.

Thank you for reading Lila's Child. Hopefully you gained a bit of
insight into the nuances of the MOQ. I know I certainly did while
putting the book together.

If you haven't already, I'd check out Anthony McWatt's website at
www.robertpirsig.org. He has lots of valuable information as well as
links to other MOQ-related sites.
